Computers

The Lloyd Sealy Library currently has over 100 computers available for student, faculty, and staff use. Both Macs and PCs are available.

Funds from the Student Technology Fee have made the purchase of Library computers and databases possible.

Where can I type and print papers in the Library?

Lower level: The Reserve Room is the Library's main computer lab. PCs and iMacs are equipped with the same software available in the other campus labs, including Microsoft Office, SPSS, and more. (Full list of software — scroll to bottom.)

Computer lab assistants are available to provide help during most open hours. During peak times, the Reserve Room Lab has extended hours (see schedule).

Upper level: 32 additional computers are equipped with Microsoft Office. These PCs are located near the glass wall by the Reference Desk and on the upper deck toward the back of the Library.

Printers, scanners, and copiers are located near the computers on both floors of the Library.

Designated research workstations

While online research can be done on any computer, the computers upstairs by the stairwell and nearest to the Reference Desk are designated research workstations. They are reserved for students doing research only and are not equipped with Microsoft Office. 

Other labs on campus

John Jay maintains other computer labs elsewhere on campus. (See real-time availability info about other labs.)

Students can borrow Mac/PC laptops and iPads from the Laptop Loan Center in the New Building and use them in the Library.
